Best Lana Del Rey Songs

The Top Ten

1 Born to Die

I just love this song.. Her voice when she say "we were born to die" is really to die for.. I'm addicted to this song..

My favorite song on the planet!
She is amazing! I love this song! And CHILDREN OF A BAD REVOLUTION is incredible too :D
Lana del rey is the hit!

While Summertime Sadness is one of Lana's greatest hits, you can probably thank its mainstream radio popularity in 2012 and 2013 for its success on its list. It pales in comparison to Born to Die, which expresses love in a way that isn't even borderline cheesy (like Video Games or Blue Jeans) but, however bleak and existential it may seem, prioritizes the true virtues of love. "Born to Die", besides being the album's titular title song, symbolizes the entire album and, in a way, Lana's musical legacy.

This is such a wonderful song... I'm addicted to it... It's music video is awesome too... The lyrics are great too.. I love Lana Del Rey and her music... She's a true artist and this song is a true masterpiece that is filled with deep emotions that will take your breath away...

2 Summertime Sadness

Give this song a listen. You won't regret it. LDR at her finest.

This songs means so much to me.
The way her voice directly hits your nerves.
The beauty she has in her eyes sais it al.

Rank of this song is just too low! It should be in top 5!
It's such a great song, great melody, great lyrics,...

My favourite by far. It has everything. A very catchy and memorable chorus and an amazing instrumental.

3 Ride

This song comes with a beautiful and artistic intro. Some people may not like it but I think there's no reason to no Love it :D

I believe this song is amazing and I love how it actually tells a story
The song makes you feel what she's talking about and honestly I feel freedom listening to it. It relaxes me and it makes me alive. It truly does and I think it deserves to be higher on the list. It's an amazing song of an amazing singer and I love it

This song is amazing! It deserves to be way higher on this list<3
"I've got a war in my mind... So I just ride" It's so inspiring and beautiful. One of my favorites of hers!

This remains as Lana Del Rey's most timeless and classic song. It may not be her most reknowned or popular, but the beautiful minimalist and cinematic production, wayward lyrics, and her elegant, sultry vocals make this song so dreamy and wonderful. The song is best on a warm summer day, windows down in the car, blasting over the speakers as she sings "I just ride" repeatedly. The song is gravely in sound and iconic in imagery. Reminds me of a true American song, about being young, wild, and free. The video is 10 minutes long and adds so much to the song. A must for anybody getting into Lana's music.

4 Video Games

"Heaven is a place on earth with you... " Beautiful. By far my favorite song by Lana and it should be No. 1.

This song is haunting and touching, its very relatable! I love the piano that plays at the end when there's no singing, it has a lingering effect and this song is just amazing as a whole! Definitely should be 1st.

"Heaven is a place on earth with you..." This song is what got me into Lana. Every time I listen to it I get goosebumps, just so emotional. I've seen videos of her crying while singing this song, she's so raw with emotion, and I just love every second of this song. Much love x

"The lyrics mean so much. The first verse talks about how he wanted both her and his video games, with the chorus saying she resents that and that she wants him to love her entirely, not split in half. Then the second verse explains about before she met him, and then when they were dating. It's a narrative.

5 Blue Jeans

"I will love you till the end of time
I would wait a million years
Promise you'll remember that you're mine
Baby can you see through the tears? "
Amazing lyics and amazing song, will be definitely 1st for me

As much as I love "Born to Die" and "Video Games" this song is a brand new favourite!

Honestly like Blue Jeans a tee-bit more than Born to Die (: Love you LDR!

"But when you walked down the door
A piece of me died
Told you I wanted more
Not what I had in mind
Just want it like before
We were dancin' all night
Then they took you away
Stole you out of my life"
I absolutely LOVE this song! The beat, the lyrics, the emotion, all with a great singer to begin with!
Lana is such an inspiration.

6 Young and Beautiful

I just so love this song I don't know why I mean her voice is so smooth and I don't get bored of her voice by the way most of the songs in my iPod her songs not to be creepy but ya I'm just a normal fan of Lana del Rey big fan big fan haha and it's a really lovely song so touching I love her voice and especially her beauty it's the best song EVER and my favorite song forEVER

"Will you still love me when I'm no longer young and beautiful will you still love when I have nothing but my aching soul I know you will I know you will"

This is beauty in its finest and reminds me of a mixture of Radio and Born to die all at once

It's a lovely song! Very touching, it touches your heart...
"Will you still love me when I have nothing but my aching soul? "
I like this song best among all her songs, makes me go back to hear her other songs. But I still find that this is the best, go check it out now!

It's such a gorgeous way of expressing someone's insecurity about the way the world views them, and whether the person they care the most about in the entire world can really love them once all the shallow and superficial things that were first attractive have faded away! This song really speaks to me and others who are insecure about being able to be loved and puts such an interesting spin because it shows that even those people who seem to have everything going for them can often feel truly worthless when it comes to things that matter.

7 Off to the Races

Such a damn cool song. Didn't really listen to Lana much till I heard this song. I couldn't decide between this, ultraviolence, and diet Mountain Dew, but this is probably my favourite.

It's a really dark song, if you listen to the lyrics it's about a young girl who's with an obviously older man because he's got money and she's fooled herself into thinking she loves him. They're both probably involved in some crime and gambling and her life completely depends on him.
"My old man is a thief and I'm gonna stay and pray with him till the end"
"I'm not afraid to say that I'd die with out him"
If you haven't read or really listened to the lyrics, you should.

This song also has a very different sound, but amazing nonetheless. Totally original. I heard someone who described Lana's music perfectly, it's "like being injected with dark waves and purple and gold dust". Her vocal range in it is amazing, too. I couldn't even put a genre on the ...more

Borderline strange at some points, but pure genius was put into every inch of this song. She has such a unique and mesmerizing voice... It's truly astounding. I'm seriously obsessed with the softness and babyish quality of her voice when she sings "I'm your little scarlet, starlet, singing in the garden..". Definitely not her most popular song but I think that's one of the best things about it. Perfection.

Everyone knows born to die and blue jeans but trust mr listen to others like off to the races.. Without U... Summertime saddness... Dark paradise... I love Lana del rey

Off to the Races is a set of catchy words, traveling between the alternative line to hip-hop music. It is clearly the uppermost song in Born To Die, and references to Lolita by Nabokov makes this song unique in every way. Every time I hear it gets even more exciting and vicious!

8 West Coast

Honestly I could vote for any one of her songs, they are all amazing, but I decided on this one because it kept calling me back. The tempo change, the way it goes from a steady verse to a dreamy chorus and back again, it's like time freezes and you're just trapped by her voice, but you never want to get free from it. Reality ceases to exist, it sounds cliche, but I really could listen to this song on repeat, even after already hearing it hundreds of times. "Ultraviolence" is her magnum opus, and this is her crown jewel. It may not be her biggest song commercially, but it is quintessential Lana. She does a perfect job of capturing the feel of the West Coast, literally. My favorite Lana song, and one of the best songs of all time.

Her sultry voice in this song feels like a ghost whispering in your ear. So magical and it deserves to be in the top ten!

Should be on top1.. very mesmerizing voice... my first song of Lana del rey which attracts me like a bee to a flower. Her voice is one of most sexiest voice in music industry.

When I first heard Lana I was stunned because I actually felt something when I heard her voice, no other song made me feel something before. This takes me back to California and listening to her in the car. This song is so passionate and I never get sick of it

9 National Anthem

This song is addicting! I simply love it and gives such a great retro feeling and you just feel like swaying yourself with the song!

I love everything about this song. If you ever get a chance please listen to this. It is amazing. It was hard to pick a favorite lana song, but I would have to go with this one :D

"Money is the reason we excist. Everybody knows it, it's a fact, kiss kiss"
Amazing song, amazing video, Lana, you are AMAZING!

Favourite song! Love her voice and the production of the song. This song just makes me sway my head to its retro beat. If that still doesn't convince you the chorus is a killer.

10 Dark Paradise

This song is actually so beautiful, it should be number one. Seriously though this is my favourite. I mean oh my god her voice is stunning and full of such passion LOVE HER - so obsessed with Lana!

This is definitely the greatest of all. Passion, emotion, great lyrics and her voice. It just makes me feel I am feeling her pain.

I just love this song!. Touches every atom in your body! She just is COOL and a very good singer! You rock LDR!

This song makes me miss my dead lover I never had. This song just hits me. I listen to this every night and get teary eyed to sleep.

The Contenders

11 Gods & Monsters

Amazing voice in this song. Never heard anyone say f*** more beautifully than her in this song.

This is the most beautiful song ever! If you haven't heard it you've missed a lot! The lyrics are amazing, and the song is absolutely perfect! I am in love with this song! Listen to it! I love Lana for this song! Thanks to an amazing singer for an amazing song

One of her best - this song reflects meaning and purpose within her; gives reasoning to her success whilst outlining her morals and perspective on Hollywood life, and does it more beautifully than other other song I've heard. Deserves at least #3

People voting for Born to die are not proper Lana fans. Her voice is much more beautiful in songs like this one. This is definitely her best song.

12 High by the Beach

I just fell in love with her after listening to this song... Do I need to say more?

At first I didn't think much of it, then I realized the chorus kept playing on my head for months! Really, really addictive.

A simple yet dark and beautiful song.

One of her finest work the beat, the lyrics, it is magnificent

13 Carmen

Love this song and people need to listen to it she shows vocal. Ability and passion so you should hear it. MAKE IT NUMBER 1!

I absolutely love this song! It is one of my favourite songs ever! It is so emotive and basically just all round an amazing song! This should most definitely be number one! It is definitely my most favourite Lana Del Ray song! It really gives you an insight into her past and her involvement in drugs, alcohol and prostitution. MAKE THIS SONG NUMBER ONE!

Great song very good I think that she should be more popular than she is and I'm sure that she will get very popular due to this album and I recon that she will make los of more great albums!

I love this song! She puts so much emotion into it and the vocals are really good! She really delves in to her past and experiences with alcohol especially. She sings it with such grace and class- I love it! I honestly think this song should be number one! :-)

14 Black Beauty

Heard this song 2 days ago and I'm obsessed. The way she sings makes ne melt. Her voice in this number is really something special. Not sure if it'll be out longer since it's one if the few that got leaked this week.

To this day I have no idea why this was only a bonus song practically swept under the rug. This is her most focused, beautiful, and nostalgic-feeling song I've heard and none of her other songs really suit her image better than this song.

The first time I heard this,I cried. My boyfriend sung this to me while I was suffering greatly due to depression and existential crisis.

Shades of Cool never fails to make me happy. This song on the other hand, fails to make me hate it. I just love it so much.

15 Love

She only gets better and better with every album! This song might be one of her best yet.

This song just takes you to another place, captures your soul, makes your eyes tear up, and fills you up with happiness and love.

This song is amazing, lana always make it better

Really really really love this song heart touching

16 Cola

Love the atmosphere of the song, the only female artist capable of singing about her nether regions and still sound fabulous.

Deserves a billion views...why didn't Lana del Rey posted a video for it 6 yrs ago when it was actually sung.

Great intro music and the first line hits you like a brick. Great song

I have a question. Wouldn't Lana get a yeast infection if she put cola down there?

17 Brooklyn Baby

This is definitely one of Lana's best songs, along with Video Games and Shades of Cool. To me, it just means so much. In its simplicity, it resonates a lot more than if it were a lot more complex. The dichotomy between the chorus and the verses are really entertaining, and really quite emotional ("I say, I say") and the last minute of the song always gives me goosebumps.

Lana you are a brooklyn baby!

This is my favorite song of hers, maybe even my favorite song of all time. I love the beat, lyrics, and the meaning behind them. Overall, it's just a beautiful song

"Well, my boyfriend's in a band
He plays guitar while I sing Lou Reed
I've got feathers in my hair
I get down to Beat poetry
And my jazz collection's rare
I can play most anything
I'm a Brooklyn baby
I'm a Brooklyn baby"

Lana del Rey

18 Radio

If you just listen to the lyrics and what she is saying it is truly beautiful. Few people know this song compared to her other songs... Which are also phenomenal.

This is my #1, somehow this song doesn't get old. It is the only lana del rey song I can listen to non stop and still miss it... I love this song and its been a few years since I heard it, still love it like the first time I heard it... I doubt many people know this song cause its HEAT, and should be #1

This song means so much to me, the lyrics are so beautiful. The topic is quite different compared to a lot of Lana's song, but I absolutely love it. It's uplifting but still has an overall melancholic atmosphere. Absolutely stunning song.

Her voice in this song is so captivating! The lyrics are wonderful and along with the music just make the most beautiful combination. This song should definitely be in the top ten, if not higher.

19 Once Upon a Dream

Lana's cover for this classical song is dreamy and haunting in the very best ways. Always got chills whenever I listen to this song. Applause for Angelina Jolie for asking Lana to sing this cover for the "Maleficent" movie.

Love this song so much. Very emotional and I could listen to it everyday (which I do).

Just love how she brings out the dark and evil in this one!

This was the first song I heard of hers, so much feeling... I'm hooked.

20 Shades of Cool

This song is absolutely amazing. It is indescribable in terms of how different it sounds from any other song. The chorus makes one feel like they are flying and on top of the world and it is so relaxing but entirely amazing at the same time. The bridge is perfectly placed and the chaotic sense of it is an interesting change in the overall theme of the song.

People just listen this song. This is awesome. They way she sung the sung... It's spectacular. The drum beat at 4th minute is wow... Long live Lana. She should make songs like this at least two in a album. The video of this song is also dashing. She is incredible.

That chorus itself is ANGELIC. The way her voice just swoops up to those delicious notes, the way the interval leap just HITS you in all the right places, EVERYTHING. That guitar solo, those lyrics, how the song just manages to create such an atmosphere, it's just all kinds of amazing. I live and breathe this song.

122? This song should be in the top ten!

21 Ultraviolence

Ultraviolence is a piece of art. This song is so tranquil and relaxing but the lyrics are so powerful. Nothing will ever compare to Lana Del Rey's Ultraviolence. You can talk about her being just another indie girl but she is so much more than that. See, Melanie Martinez romanticizes topics and makes depression and sadness look cool. Then, she takes that and makes it a nursery rhyme beat with strange baby reference lyrics. Halsey is just a tumblr sad girl who hasn't really been through what she writes about. Majority of her music is just for aesthetics. Billie is a talented singer, but she doesn't relate to me as much as Lana but she is very talented. Lana is just the right type of artist for me. She doesn't romanticize her depression too much, but she talks about it enough to relate it. And she doesn't have generic song lyrics, and lastly, she doesn't talk about what all the other artists do. Ultraviolence is the best album and will always be..

Her voice calms me and makes me feel as if my mother was still alive and she is singing a lullaby to her sweet baby. These kind of songs like Young and Beautiful and Dark Paradise are so calming and heart melting to me. My mother loved the song Summertime Sadness and we sang it all day.. I looked at Lana and now she has literally changed my life. I'm on Spotify right now listening to Lana. Ultraviolence is my favorite album and it always will! My mother was young and beautiful and I loved her. In Money, Power, and Glory, She sings me to sleep like I'm a baby in my mothers arms.. Ultraviolence has changed my life. This should be number 1 and Summertime Saddness should be right behind it on number 2.

Ultraviolence is going to be an epic album! Believe me, Jim told me that...

I'm so obsessed with this song, at first it took me a while to get into it but now I'm completely hooked! One of Lana's best!

22 Cruel World

One of her most underrated songs. Give it a listen if you haven’t already.

Lana herself has admitted that it's her favourite song of ultraviolence and she has reason. Being slowly built with heavy guitar and extremely long notes, this is the lana's song that will make you feel melancholic and at the same time it will leave you with a feeling of satisfaction.

One of her best written/constructed songs. Escalates, gets you lost in the moment. Her haunting voice has never been so comforting.

One of my favorites ever. The chorus just gives you chills and the guitar is amazing in this

23 Without You

Great song but don't know why it got put at number 10 it should at least be put in the top five or even number 1 'great song'!

Hauntingly beautiful song. Beautiful meaning and lyrics too.
'I'm nothing without you. All my dreams and all the lights mean nothing if I can't have you. '

It's heartbreaking and beautiful. She has a number of great songs, but there is always one song that reflects the artist as a whole. This is that song. Dark American Heartbreak Love Ballad ahh

The lyrics are so meaningful for me. And Lana sings it very deepful and beautifully amazing. Love it so much. "I've nothing without you. "

24 Playing Dangerous

This is the most addictive song I've heard... Also #CHILDREN OF THE BAD REVOLUTION#
It makes you fantasize a lot and you will enjoy it quickly... PURE LOVE THAT'S WHAT THIS SONG IS :D

Gosh... Love this one... So many sick songs. Love you Lana

A whole movie in your head when you listen to it

Come on people... Listen to the original on

25 Old Money

Old Money is my favorite song, not just by her, but my FAVORITE song. The tune to it is right on track. My favorite part is when she harmonizes with her OWN voice. This deserves to be #1!

I love this song. The way Lana sings the chorus sounds slightly nervous and unsure. It's amazing. Also, she sings a shorted version of the first verse at the end of the song but it seems so different.

This is the only song that has ever made me cry. It is perfection. So much emotion, beauty, and divine lyricism. Her best song in my opinion.

I don't get how this isn't ranked higher its such a beautiful song. the melody reminds me of the love theme from romeo and juliet and the lyrics are just amazing

26 Florida Kilos

What? Truly, all the other songs of lana are perf but this one is a song I'll listen to in many years. My favourite song since I discovered lana completely one year ago and I love it. It has a chilly effect on me and a day without listening to Florida kilos isn't that awesome. Love it.

This is one of my favorite Lana Del Rey songs of all time. It gives you a chilling feeling.

This song is so sexy, I absolutely love it! It should be higher

This one is definitely my favorite but I voted for cola

27 Lust for Life

Such an amazing song should in top 5, not after 50.

Good heavens! I've just found this

Chills every time I listen

One of her best

28 Sad Girl

Oh I really love this song! It makes me feel sad and I like how I feel about it. Lana is like the best songwriter and best singer in the world.

This song literally represents everything that's going on in my soul. Can't get enough. Listen to it now and vote to get it to the top!

Chills take over when the chorus hits. You can hear the melancholy in her husky voice.

Amazing! Such perfect lyrics and beautiful sound

29 Body Electric

Just wait for The Paradise Edition. This song is gonna blow peoples' socks off! One of her very best, for sure.

This song is so cinematic and powerful, I'm so surprised it's not higher on the list; her voice is so pure and beautiful in this one and it feels really empowering

How is this in 97th?! This song is amazing, it should be at least in the top 20! The song can be creepy, dark but beautiful at the same time. This is a masterpiece!

"Elvis is my daddy Marilyn's my mother Jesus is my best friend" "suicides my baby heaven is her father" BEST SONG ever!

30 Venice Bitch

Are you kidding me!? 104!? This one is one of her best tracks. Transcends you to a whole other universe.

Pink Floyd feels


It's perfect, just perfevt... the lyrics, the music, the duration..

31 Heroin

Many wont like this song because of the title heroin but the song has more of meaning about love and change then just drugs

Her best lycris ever

32 Chelsea Hotel No. 2

Leonard Cohen lyrics + lana del rey's voice makes this song absolutely perfect

Perfection for your ears, my favourite song, whilst listening to it I see beauty in life... I don't know, worth a listen definitely

I can't even describe how perfectly Lana delivers this song...

I think this is the best lana song but whatever...

33 Tomorrow Never Came

How is this not higher, it’s absolutely stunning

34 Mermaid Motel

Love it so much the chorus is so magical

35 Money Power Glory

The way Money Power Glory starts slow and slightly condescending then blooms to such an emotional chorus is incredible. Deserves to be much higher up in this list.

Oh my God. #84? This is shameful! I'm going to see her next May, and if she doesn't play this I can't begin to describe how disappointed I'll be.

"I can do it if you really really like that..."

Listening to this song makes me feel invincible

Why isn't this in the top 20? BEST SONG EVER!

36 Art Deco

It is great and so is Bel Air, Salvatore, and Ride!

This sounds like a fresh born to die song

"A little party never hurt no one"

This sounds so born to die.

37 Beautiful People, Beautiful Problems

This song is beautiful and so underrated, give it a listen!

This song is SO AMAZING. Lana and Stevie make the perfect combination and they sound amazing together. The backing instruments sound exquisite and beautiful. can't wait for more from lana!

38 Get Free

One of my favourite songs of hers. This song is special. It shows how much her music and she herself has evolved.

This song makes me fly. From the the beautiful verses to the burst of the beachy chorus. Probably the best from the album.

39 Salvatore

I was worried about honeymoon till I heard this song. Its perfection and it suits her style so well that I want more songs like this one. Honeymoon is an excellent album. Particularly after Art Deco

I have no idea why this is 149th. This song is one of Lana's best song and beautifully written. This. Song. Is. Absolutely. Flawless.

#149? Really? This song is literally everything and nothing at the same time.

This is my second favourite song by her! Why is it number 149?

40 F*** It I Love You
41 Live or Die

Are we gonna be Bonnie and Clyde? Awesome!

42 Honeymoon

Definitely the most beautiful song on the Honeymoon album.

You really have to listen to it a few times to truly appreciate it. its one of her best in my opinion

I just love the way she says "dark blue".
This song is perfect like the other ones.

43 Freak


BEST SONG! Way too low

Bessst song

44 The Blackest Day

This song is like my own favorite brand of heroin. I dig the pain.

I agree, this song is underrated. You can feel the sadness in her voice. The intensity and way her sadness in her voice catches you and lets you hear her "suffer" from the absence of the person she is loves, still gives me goosebumps after having listened to it a hundred times at least.

This song is so far one of the best songs of Lana, you guys should give this song an opportunity.

This should be moved to the top! Amazing song.

45 Music to Watch Boys To

The music in this song is brilliant.

Greeat song must be higher in the list


Best song in honey moon album
Good luck

46 Doin' Time
47 When the World Was at War We Kept Dancing

Best song ever

48 Lolita

Deserves a much higher rank! Love Lana's voice and how she sings the chorus!

I feel bad that I just voted this song instead voting another one but I'm obsessed with lolita

I am seriously obsessed with this song I've never heard anything so amazing like this :o why isn't this higher up in the list? Some of the songs before Lolita shouldn't even be there

This song truly does capture the innocently naughty vibe of Lolita. With clever word play and unique production, Lolita is one of Lana's best.

49 God Knows I Tried

The emotional expression of the lyrics in this song, the notion of melancholy, is absolutely stunning. Heer voice is so powerful here, and the "Let there be light" repetition at the end with those high notes killed me! Should be much much higher up a masterpiece and one of her best songs yet.

An instant Lana classic! I was so happy when I heard this song, just another brilliant beauty to add to the rest of her gorgeous catalogue.

Definitely one of her best. Simple, yet one of her few songs where her style is perfected and...what's that? Emotion?

50 Hollywood

Beautiful and easily would have fit in with Ultraviolence.

Amazing... One day my hopes will be made of diamonds
